Since leaving school, I've had to clear my bag out of all the paper, pens and other random bits. This is what was left and what I will be carrying round with me this summer. The bag is getting old now but was from Accessorise and I got it around Christmas time. It's big enough but not too big (if that even makes sense)!
Pen & Pencil
If I need to note anything down, I will usually use my phone. However, I still find myself needing pens for things like forms when out and about.
Knowing how unpredictable England's weather is, especially this time of year - an umbrella is a must. I'm not sure where I picked this one up but it wasn't anywhere fancy.
This is an obvious one, I don't have a clue what I'd do without it.
Mac Select Cover-Up
This is a life saver when I'm out for a long period of time and feel like I need some concealer. It's tiny and so effective.
I picked this coin purse up from H&M in france a while back and it's so useful for when I don't want to carry my bulky purse about. Of course I still need my all important points cards for el mexicana and nero!
I don't wear these as much as I should really. They are by Ted Baker and I think are actually mens, but who gives a damn?!
Vaseline & 4head
Around this time of year my lips get quite dry so I find these little vaseline pots helpful. I was introduced to the 4head sticks by my friends and they work so well. I used it a lot when I was at school in lessons and a head ache came on. You literally just wipe them across your forehead and the headache fades away!
Lastly, of course, I need my current read. At the moment I'm reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green but I'm not too sure if I like it yet.
Are you carrying round anything else that you think is handy? Let me know!
